Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Furuta played an integral roll in helping us figure out why our one year old was not growing or meeting her milestones. He took our family in last minute at the end of his busy day and spent almost two hours with us. His kindness led us to find the answers we needed for our daughter and she is now thriving and growing. We couldn't thank him enough.
